Exemplary Performance Target Areas

Minimum Origin Green Targets Required Annually = 4

Spotlight Target Area: Energy

Miena’s became a member of Origin Green in 2017 and established a 5 year sustainability plan with clear timelines and targets. The company works from the principle that operating as efficiently as possible and implementing robust environmental standards will have a positive impact upon the company’s bottom line. Miena’s utilises limited ingredients within production and orders in bulk through careful planning to reduce unnecessary waste.

Throughout 2019, the company reflected a strong performance, excelling in particular across the target areas of energy and community engagement. 

Careful Monitoring for Great Results

Within the energy target area, the company set an ambitious target of reducing overall energy usage per unit by 20% over a five year period. While the business continues to grow, energy usage is carefully monitored day-to-day within the company. This is reflected in the fact that Miena’s has already surpassed its five year energy target 12 months ahead of schedule. 

The company will continue to adopt and implement sound energy management practices with the aim of further reductions and cost savings over the remainder of its sustainability plan. 

Making nougat from home with people who’s company I enjoy, means I’m never working, I am just doing what I love.
